#### Work Step by Step

The decimal point is surrounded by place values to the right and left. To the right of the decimal point, one place to the decimal value is the tenths, then the following value is the hundredths, then thousandths and then finally ten thousandths, so forth, as this can be seen below. A trick to remember them is that the value places to the left side consists of 'ths' added to every place value on the left side of the decimal place.
0.1 ( tenths value )
0.01 ( Hundredths )
0.001 ( Thousandths )
0.0001 ( Ten Thousandths )
Whereas on the right side it is the same as the left, but without the 'ths'. This can be seen below:
1.0 ( Ones )
10.0 ( Tens )
100.0 ( Hundreds )
1,000.0 ( Thousands )
10,000.0 ( Ten thousand)
100,000.0 ( Hundred Thousands )
1,000,000.0 ( Million )
